Argyle Brut Rose 2014
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A blend of pinot noir and pinot meunier with some chardonnay, this pink sparkler has an umami top note, like that of washed-rind cheese, over its biscuit scents. Mildly earthy and salty in flavor, it’s a quiet, gently persistent wine for a cheese course. (2,500 cases)
Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon. The Argyle wines represented on this list include sparkling wine, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, truly making Argyle one of the finest practitioners of the craft of elegant, long-lived winegrowing.
